Tasting Notes

This is the final vintage from the Clos du Grand Père, as it needs to be replanted due to fan-leaf. This was a 79-year old vineyard when this wine was made. It’s 60% 2011 and 40% ’10, but the delicate hint of grassiness is actually from ’10, not ’11. Deg 11/2015, it’s an extremely high-toned iteration of this wine; essentially naked chalk, bracing, as if they’d made a mint of Chardonnay. —Terry Theise
